Over the decades, the residents of Paw Paw Lake have noticed that some things don’t make complete sense. Things are seen that should not be there. Rational minds encounter impossible specters as the sun drains from the day. Everyone seems to have a story of a ghostly encounter that should not be possible. If the residents of the lovely lake community spoke of what they have seen, the accounts might be similar to the stories collected in The Ghosts of Paw Paw Lake.

Product description…

Dave McClure is on a plane to Alaska in early winter, having quit his job with the FBI and turned his back on the world. It’s been a year since the horrific accident that claimed his wife and son, and McClure is still unable to move beyond his grief. Remembering the joy he once shared with his wife on vacation in Alaska, he heads north… seeking solace and resolving to either put his painful past behind him or succumb to the unforgiving Alaskan wilderness. Instead, McClure finds a grisly scene in the forest — the body of a hunter whose throat has been cut ear to ear. And that’s only the beginning. In Snow Men… equal parts international thriller and wilderness survival — McClure uncovers a cache of nuclear weapons and a Russian-Iranian plot to wipe the nation of Israel off the map. With only a hunting rifle, a pistol, and a few days worth of supplies, Dave McClure not only faces Russian Special Forces and the harsh reality of nature, but discovers a will to live he didn’t know he still had. Spanning locales in Alaska, Paris, Amsterdam, Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, Thailand, and Washington, DC, Snow Men is a heart-pounding thriller set against the pristine beauty of Alaska’s rugged Wrangell-St. Elias wilderness.
